ORDER

view counter
1

On receipt and consideration of a petition for enforcement of the Board's order in the above-styled case; and

2

Noting that the Board, after hearing, issued a decision and order, reported at 218 N.L.R.B. No. 174 (1975), finding that respondent Cooperative had violated § 8(a)(5) and (1) of the National Labor Relations Act, 29 U.S.C. § 158(a)(5) and (1) (1970), by withdrawing recognition from the union without sufficient evidence of a good faith doubt of the union's majority status and by refusing to discuss a grievance with the union; and

3

Noting that the record shows that the Cooperative and the union1 had had a bargaining relationship based upon Board certification from 1959 until July of 1974; and

4

Noting further the Board's finding that the reasons asserted by the Cooperative for a good faith doubt did not provide an objective basis for such good faith doubt of the union's majority; and

5

Further finding on review of this record that the Board's finding in this regard is supported by substantial evidence on the whole record,

6

Now, therefore, enforcement of the Board's order is granted.
